You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

And A Robin In A Christmas Tree

Robin the Boy Wonder was created in 1940 for a variety of reasons but chief among them was the need for someone Batman could rescue on a regular basis, and as such, Dick Grayson (who, as everyone but the Joker, the Penguin and any enemy of the Caped Crusader knows, is really Robin) tends to get into a lot of tight spots—even when decorating a Christmas tree, as on this classic Batman cover from February-March 1946 (#33), drawn by major Batman artist Dick Sprang. Hopefully Batman raced to the rescue, as usual. (And if you are a Batman fan, be sure and visit Tom's super Batman Bat-Bog—it's a Bat Cave-full of photos, art, collectables and more, with an emphasis on (but not limited to) the classic 1966 TV series).
